Amy Schumer Shocks Fans With An Update About A Recent Surgery

Amy Schumer is one celebrity who has been open about her health and parenting journey. The star documented her difficult pregnancy with her son Gene in an HBO Max special called "Expecting Amy." Then, she candidly shared her IVF experience with fans via Instagram, recounting in part, "Hey! So ivf went like this for us. They retrieved 35 eggs from me. Not bad for the old gal right? Then 26 fertilized! Whoah right? For all of those we got 1 normal embryo from that... So we feel lucky we got 1! But what a drop off right?" (via USA Today).

Now, Schumer has taken fans along for the ride for another major development in her life. Again taking to Instagram, the comedian recorded a video from her hospital bed, telling the camera that it was the morning after her surgery. "My uterus is out," Schumer says, adding the doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis on her uterus, and also removed her appendix (via People).

The "I Feel Pretty" actress also captioned a photo of herself wearing a hospital gown, "If you have really painful periods you may have #endometriosis."

According to Healthline, endometriosis is a condition in which the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, and often causes heavy bleeding and severe pain.
